Still To be finished but here's one I did on a friend last thursday. Didn't complete it as it was getting late and his pain barrier was flagging as well as my concentration, So we called it a night. But Looking not bad at this stage. Needs tidying up a bit and think the dark blue needs to come down a bit more in a fade or blend. (any tips on that anyone?) Also was going to finish off the bottom with a white.

Your thoughts would be great. I'll obviously upload the finished art when done..

So I finally got to finish off the arm. I personally think it's a little untidy. Had a bit of trouble getting the white in, but slowed right down and managed it in the end. Didn't want to over work the areas i did first so it's going to be a bit patchy. But he's happy with it and is going to let me do a final pass with the white once it's healed up. I'm not overly happy with the blends either. But I am still learning.

it's a nice design and the tattoo looks well, a little bit of white around the edges looks great but not to fill in large areas, also if you use a third colour in-between the two blues you will get a much better effect, I don't know if you have used curved mags yet but if not then try them out you will get a much better fade effect.
